A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal
Dear Hacienda Families,
We are moving into this beautiful autumn season, and as I look outside my office window, I am crossing my fingers for some rain! Our Fall Festival last week was just phenomenal, and I hope that all of you enjoyed it as much as I did. We had plenty of delicious food, beautiful weather, and games and activities galore. I heard from numerous students that the haunted house was SUPER scary this year, which of course made it even more exciting! Thank you to HIPS and all of our wonderful volunteers for your many hours of effort in organizing this special event for our community.
Recently, we completed our Scholastic Book Fair, which was such a resounding success that we will be having another one in May. That one will be a bit smaller, and will take place the week of Open House. Thank you to Susan Herrera and Chris Jelesky for coordinating the book fair(s).
Traffic seems to be flowing pretty smoothly around Hacienda, and it’s always appreciated when drivers take care to not block our neighbors’ driveways. Also, when you pull in to the drop off area in the parking lot in front of the school, please be sure to pull al the way up to the blue gates before your child exits the vehicle. And of course, ALWAYS have your child exit only from the passenger side of the vehicle to ensure their safety.
We will be finished with conferences on the 6th, and will move right into Veteran’s Day, which falls on Wednesday, November 11th. Please enjoy a midweek day off with your children.
Before closing, I would like to give you all a brief update regarding Recess 101. Coach Ariel is now teaching Physical Activity Classes with all grade levels, training has begun for our Recess Leaders, and overall the structure at recess and lunch continue to show improvement. Students have learned the parameters for the various games played during these times. We have created zones for the 1st through 3rd grade lunch area, and are working to improve the flow of, and expedite 4th and 5th grade students as they transition from play to lunch. We continue to ensure that all students have enough time to eat and play.
Finally, I would like to encourage all parents to attend part II of Unwrapping the Common Core: Math Practices, taking place on Monday, November 16th, at Reed Elementary (on Jacob). This is a great opportunity for parents to experience a common core math lesson at the grade level of their choice. Lessons will be taught by teachers from Reed, Hacienda, an Schallenberger, and you may ask all the questions that will help you, parents, support your children as they learn math the common core way. I hope to see you there!

The Burnett Enrollment Center is moving to a new temporary location – 4855 Pearl Avenue San José, 95136
The school district’s enrollment center, currently known as the Burnett Enrollment Center, will be welcoming families at its new temporary location, 4855 Pearl Ave. All new families enrolling their children in SJUSD schools should take note that staff at the enrollment center will be helping them at this new location beginning May 18.
